Meeting programs and registration

The full meeting program, including meeting room locations, will only be distributed at the meeting itself, not in advance. However, program content information will be published on the APA’s web site for the meeting beginning in December 2017, along with information about hotel and meeting registration, etc. At meeting registration, registrants will receive information for accessing an electronic version of the meeting program via a smartphone app or computer. Please note that all participants in SACP sessions must register for the APA meeting. A reduced rate is available for those registering at least two weeks prior to the meeting.
